Steve and I worked together at FLHS for a few years. He and Fred and I were usually the first ones in and we had great talks, often about how the Reds were better than the Indians. I only learned of his passing because I wanted to catch up. He was a wonderful person. He was so anxious to be a father, and I am confident that he was a great one.

To Steve's family,

Today I was reading the Summer issue of University of Dayton Magazine and I saw Steve's name. I am shocked and saddened to learn of Steve's passing. Steve was an outstanding criminal justice student at UD and one of the best persons I have ever had the privilege of knowing. The peace makers of this world lost a soldier.

My sympathies to your family.

Back when we didn't have cell phones or digital cameras, Steve snapped a photo of me and my son at the UD-father/son basketball camp. To this day, that photo sits on my nightstand. The memorial mass was beautiful. I know he will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers to Maureen and family. I got to know Steve in law school and remained friends. I worked with him on law school alumni matters and in particular tha Law School Scholarship golf outing. Always a positive person and a good friend. My wife Brigid met Steve during their undergraduate time at UD. We will both miss him dearly.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Yuhas family at this difficult time. Steve and I were in the same class at UDSL. I remember him, even way back then, to be a warm and caring person and a friend to all. This world is a little sadder to not have Steve in it. May God bless his family and friends.
